Ryan Viselli looked on the line board in the Penticton Vees dressing room and found his name in an unfamiliar spot.

The second-year Vee found himself playing with rookie Beau Bennett and Denver Manderson. In Game 1 on the Vees’ first round series with the Merritt Centennials, Viselli collected a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win. In Game 3, he added another goal as the Vees won 6-1 and took a strangle hold on the series with a 3-0 lead with Game 4 going Tuesday night in Merritt.

Not surprisingly, Viselli enjoyed playing with his new linemates.
